Hey everyone, I'm going to college in 3-4 months and just got into fishing. I'm thinking about fishing for meat and buying vegtables and nuts, and living off of that for the most part. I live on the west coast in San Luis Obispo and can catch rock fish and other sea fish reliably and am worried about mercury. I hear arguments from both sides of it, and it sounds like predatory fish are the worst. And I read that it is because of our coal burning and dirty farming techniques that there is mercury in the ocean. I also read an article claiming some fish were tested out in Hawaii in 1970 and then in 1997 and the mercury levels in them were the same despite the increasing mercury levels in the air and ocean. Can I eat fish every single day and be safe? Does the fact that I eat healthfully make my body more effective at filtering out the mercury?
